Speakers Bureau Opportunities!

programsThe BIA-MA Speakers Bureau is a group of individuals that participate in outreach efforts to educate others about brain injury. The members of the Speakers Bureau includes survivors, family members, caregivers, or anyone affected by brain injury.

Within the Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts (BIA-MA), there are several opportunities to become involved! Get involved in the prevention efforts as a survivor and share your survivor story. Not a survivor? We also encourage anyone who has been affected by or is particularly passionate about brain injury prevention to participate in one of the many outreach opportunities the Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts provides.

Individuals affected by brain injury and their stories are an integral and invaluable part of brain injury awareness, prevention, and education.

Individuals from the Speakers Bureau speak at:
